Rick Berkowitz (Richb45) is a good friend with a sweet restored '72 914 - and he and his wife drove my 2011 meteor grey Cayman S - and so loved it, they went and bought its almost-twin!

They found a mint '11 meteor grey Cayman in Rhode Island and got it for $29k, and now we have both nice Cayman's AND 914's!

So here are some pics of our almost twins.......

There's more Cayman owners here than I would have thought (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

I had been looking at Boxters since last summer - pre 2000 or post 2005, with the more reliant IMS bearings. A couple months ago, started thinking, we already have a 914 that the top comes off of, so started looking at Caymans. I think they look sexier anyway (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cheer.gif)

Being that we'd be spending a lot of time in AZ, I wanted a light color exterior and light interior ... preferably silver with tan or light gray, but ended up purchasing a white 2007 'S', 6-speed manual with tan interior.

I test drove a few that I just weren't worth the price - broken bits here & there, and one had real noisy cam chains (IMG:style_emoticons/default/yikes.gif) The inspection on the last one I looked at indicated it was a well-maintained specimen and the test drive was exhilarating (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

Planning to keep it for a long time ... either until I can't drive, or have a hard time getting in & out of it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Nothing wrong with Boxters, Jamie. In fact, I've got a line on a pretty nice silver 1997 w/5-speed and approx 85k on it for a really great price. The only problem is ... where to park it so my wife doesn't see it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I am interested in having my name added to this list as the HB house is about to go up for sale. I think I would really like have an R in blue.

This will go at some point and a Cayman take it's place. I love the way it drives, but it made me realize that I really wanted a Cayman instead.

I.m looking for an R but I.d take John.s if he.d sell it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif)

I.d sell you my 987.1 for a song Joe. I.m waiting too to sell one of our houses to make the deal. Right now realators in Cali can list but not show the property.

I wouldn.t buy a teener....a house....or a Cayman sight unseen.

I absolutely love my CS thougn. It.s a great car like the 914....they all should have had flat sixes though.

Nice color but have you seen my build thread. I'm probably going to need the performance that you are seeking…

But I want a Cayman…

Yes, they all need 6's
